Summit for Literacy Update Day 9

Time to Celebrate!

Day 9 marked the end of an amazing adventure for our Kili Conquerers.  

The team left Mweka Camp after breakfast and hiked back down to Mweka Gate, where vehicles were waiting to bring them back to their hotel...and a well-earned hot shower!

Tonight was an opportunity for the climbers to have one last dinner all together and celebrate their many great accomplishments. The team was very happy to learn that donations had kept coming in during their climb, reaching nearly $205,000!

Thank you very much for your support throughout the adventure!

To get more insight into what was going on in the climbers’ minds during their journey, we invite you to read a blog post by Margaret Casey we just posted on our website.

Check out our Facebook and Twitter accounts for more pictures of the climb as they come in.
